11 Steps to the Perfect Staycation


3) Plan Your Time Beforehand And Stick To It!

The real secret to executing the perfect staycation is perfect planning. If you don’t plan your staycation, it’s too easy for everybody to slip into their usual habits. Avoid the work stuff, housework, lying around playing video games and watching TV. Before you know it the week will be ending and you’ll feel like you’ve just wasted time doing what you normally do on a weekend.

Without planning, you’re likely to use your time off to do chores around the home, run errands you’ve been putting off, or fulfilling obligations to other people. That’s not to say you shouldn’t be relaxing on your staycation, but you can schedule relaxing activities that you can do together as a family. Make sure you set aside time to watch a movie together or play a board game. To avoid falling into the trap of indecisiveness, and just giving up on the day, make sure you plan activities that take you out of the house every single day.
